Why Need Security

An SSL Certificate is a bit of code on your Customer's web server that secures online communications. SSL Certificates inspire trust, keep online interactions private and help customers gain the confidence to conduct transactions on a web site. SSL Certificates are used by Customers on:

  • Web & Mail servers
  • Forums
  • Blogging platforms
  • Wikis and VPNs
  • Business Intranets and Extranets
  • All Types of Control Panels
  • Consumer Portals
  • and many more websites!

In a virtual world, there is always an element of doubt when sending or receiving sensitive information. A large percentage of internet users leave websites when asked to provide any information about themselves, simply because the website was not a secure website. There is no better way of building users' trust than by enabling SSL on your website and getting an SSL Certificate for your website.

Verification Process

Once you purchase a Digital Certificate, there are four steps you need to take before your Digital Certificate Enrollment Process is successfully completed.

Generating a Public and Private Key
